Who Are We?

In the Liberal Arts Action Lab, Hartford community partners propose semester-long research projects to pursue in collaboration with student and faculty teams from Trinity College and Capital Community College. Each semester, students apply to join Action Lab project teams and enroll in two courses to learn research skills and digital tools while collaborating with their partner organizations. Our goals are to strengthen the city and its role in the region, spark social innovation, and support civic engagement and sustainability. See completed and current projects.

Project Summary

As students of Trinity College in the Liberal Arts Action Lab we had the opportunity to work with ConnectiKids to explore what long term outcomes ConnectiKids’ participants have experienced since their participation in the program. ConnectiKids is a Positive Youth Development program that provides after school tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programs to Hartford youth grades K-8. We supported ConnectiKids in their efforts to utilize PYD for the children in their community by increasing their chances of getting funding.
